What are Related Services and how are they determined?

Related services include speech-language and occupational therapy, physical therapy, and counseling. All related services, except speech-language, are charged separately from tuition on an hourly basis. Funded students will start with the related services indicated on their IEP. As part of the admissions process, the related service professionals will determine the service amount after a review of reports, evaluations, and the student’s visit. The related services determined by the team are critical to the student’s academic progress. They are a condition of the student’s acceptance and part of the signed contract. Initial related services for new students are discussed by the school/parent team at the 45-60 day review meeting to determine if the current amount of service remains adequate. Students who do not require any related services are likely to need a less restrictive school setting than what is offered at KTS.
